Engage Students during Black History Month with Mae Jemison STEM!
Students love learning about Mae Jemison by completing this STEM challenge! Reading passages teach students about how Mae Jemison was the first African American Woman in space. Designing and building a rocket to launch into space helps solidify the lesson in a hands-on way!
This activity helps students develop critical thinking and engineering skills. Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.
Aligns with NGSS(Next Gen Science Standards).
